On the challenge "Create a new rule that targets .main-heading. Give the heading a text shadow by setting the horizontal and vertical offsets to 0, the blur radius to 5px, and the color to the hex value be7b31. "

I ave the solution below: .main-heading { text-shadow: 0px 0px 5px #be7b31; }

And still a get the error that the vertical shadow is not 0.

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */

.main-heading { 
 text-shadow: 0px 0px 5px #be7b31; 
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
    <header id="top" class="main-header">
      <span class="title">Journey Through the Sierra Nevada Mountains</span>
      <h1 class="main-heading">Lake Tahoe, California</h1>

        <div class="primary-content">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

        <footer class="main-footer">
            <p>All rights reserved to the state of <a href="#">California</a>.</p>

Remove the px from your horizontal and vertical offsets.


.main-heading { text-shadow: 0 0 5px #be7b31; }
